Flor de Selva Cigars (Cigares)

Saludos,

Greetings, habitué of Honduras. We at Habana Port Cigar Merchants are proud to introduce to you Flor de Selva. This cigar brand has been in existence for over 15 years with its distribution focus for the most part on Europe. Flor de Selva is the brainchild of Maya Selva who is originally from Honduras but moved to Paris. In 1992 she decided to return to her familial roots and began her education about the cigar business under the tutelage of Nestor Plasencia, Sr. She contracted the famous Plasencia to construct her cigars and the first batch was released in March 1995. Flor de Selva showcases the finest tobaccos Honduras has to offer and so the puro’s blend is very clean and elegant. The flavor profile is one of a cedary, buttery, creamy nature with an undertone of coffee. Flor de Selva is quite mild but very complex in its flavor profile. Perfect for both the beginner and expert.

You can imagine our pleasure when we saw the company making its U.S. debut at the big cigar trade show in July 2013. Knowing the reputation of the company and her blends, Habana Port was the 10th U.S. cigar retailer to open an account with Maya Selva Cigares and the first in Louisiana (in fact we may have been the first in the country to receive a shipment as our invoice number was #1). We invite you to try one of the most famous cigar brands you have not heard about. We are initially offering the Robusto (4 3/4 x 50), the Robusto Maduro (4 3/4 x 50 and the only size that utilizes a Maduro wrapper), the Tempo (6 x 60) and the Petit-Cigares (3 1/2 x 20 and one of the smallest handmade cigars on the market).

Bodum Storage Jar for Pipe Tobacco

Saludos,

Greetings, backers of Bodum. Here is a picture of the food-grade storage containers we use to showcase and house our bulk pipe tobacco. If you are not familiar with Bodum, let us introduce you. Bodum is a tableware and kitchenware company founded in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1944 by Peter Bodum and is known for its high-quality standards and focus on artistic and high aesthetics for its product lines. They are known for coffee equipment and presses, containers and other kitchenware.

We at Habana Port are an official merchant for Bodum and can special-order any product in their catalog. We currently have their Brazil coffee set, coffee grinder and demi-tasse (perfect for the espresso enthusiasts) for sale. Our Baton Rouge location is waiting on a shipment of Presso Jars from this company so we can finish our bulk pipe tobacco set-up. Bodum’s jars are perfect for storing pipe tobacco as it has a food-grade seal so the tobacco’s internal moisture content will not escape. If you would like to order Bodum online from us, visit CigarEarth.com.
